City Sitting por Keith Michael NYC, en Flickr
Pigeon 1 (Fred),, " hey heard durstbag is gonna leave that antennae bare without a radome,,ha ha." Pigeon 2 (jake),, "pretty soon we won't have to deal with these people walking around us, unless there feeding us of course, we'll eat till we're stuffed!" Fred, " hell yeah then we can go hide from predators, like falcons on that 1700ft roost and poop all over that pretty tower." Jake" I'm glad durstbag is screwing over these humans,, that radome would have been to slippery to relax on",Fred, "thanks durst!, for protecting us from predators by giving us a 1700 ft roosting spot"! Pigeon 1 or Fred "let's go tell our other 30,000 pigeon friends." That 1st pigeon I can just see that running through his brain, If i were a bird, that would be the safest place in the city, and hell yeah IT would be my home..And my 30,000 closest bird friends. Sorry guys just wanted to vent a bit about the mastspiretenna.

Looking back over nearly two years of time-lapse. Filming tomorrow's installation for an upcoming One World Trade Center documentary. It's proving to be a historic day for America.

If you're talking about 2IFC in Hong Kong, 1WTC is 9.9 meters taller rooftop. You're sure you're not inquiring about HK Int Comm Center? Because thats 484m roof. I'm sorry just saw HRPforlife answered your ? So this is FOR SURE tommorow at 7:30 am? Is it really gonna happen this time? Fingers Crossed.

Flawless skyline-shots that expose the "booming boldness" of ONE WTC with the "sinking dark"
